Hailing from northeastern PA, Lee, an MRI Technologist, has always enjoyed the outdoors. His home base provides plenty of camping, paddling, fishing, hiking, and just plain relaxing! When not out on the water, he enjoys cooking up delicious food on the grill. On a fishing trip out on Lake Ontario, a family friend nicknamed him “amateur hour”, and it stuck because, as he jokes, he supposes he is an amateur who is always learning!

Favorite AE Story:
During the maiden voyage of our Advanced Elements kayaks, I was trolling for fish, my wife paddling behind me, as I got my first hit. She started yelling "you've got a fish" and was even more excited than I was! It makes me so happy that we're able to get out and enjoy the outdoors together.
